    Two completely different work outs. To consider P90X the superior workout is to say your goals are fat loss and definition. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that, and most people will see awesome results if they stick to it. Cross Fit is heavy cardio and strength training with the intent to improve bodily function, both through natural movement and full-body weighted lifts.

    Weight Watchers would be a closer comparison.

    You mean it's true?

      Most people who do P90X are already in shape, looking to get into better shape.

      If you're fat, it's probably better to start with Power 90, and move into P90X.

      I just prefer something I can do at home and get done in 30 minutes. I work a lot.

        most people who STICK with P90X are already in shape. Someone who's out of shape is unlikely to stick with much of anything. And if your fat, it's probably best to start with walking.

        It's apples and oranges though. People looking to get in shape for the first time should pursue a workout like P90X. Someone looking to further their athletic abilities should take a route similar to Cross fit. Both of them will provide at least some benefit in the other routes strong point, but the strengths are clear.

        In other words, don't expect someone doing P90X to be able to do 20 pull ups, but he could probably run a few cross fit drills better than the regulars.

          I always thought the program was too long, initially, but since the new 30 minute version came out, I said what the hell. I'm 4 weeks in now and I'm already feeling good about it. I'm more impressed with the way I've had a healthier outlook in foods and stuff and cutting out my stresses. The first week was difficult, but I started drinking a recovery drink and my muscles feel alright the next day. I'm mostly trying to tone up. I simply don't have the time for anything else. Needed something easy to do and easy to pirate

            $10 a stat increase imo. $15 a custom item etc etc. I'd happily sub premium and drop 50 bucks every now an then on it then. Oh, but then i'd have all inhuman stats to hunt my NPCs with. And then everyone would have inhuman and it would be down to skill/numbers instead of stats? Damn....

              I think $10 per stat increase would be pretty good.

              FYP. And don't sweat it, some people just find it difficult to role-play characters that are different from their own personalities. :-)

                I purchased a basic account today and got 15 storypoints. I converted them at a rate of 4:1. Has something been changed?

                  I would pay for storypoints at a reasonable conversion rate.

                        As posted in the General Announcements thread:
                        In conjunction with the option to purchase StoryPoints through Skotos, the conversion rate of Role Points to StoryPoints has been increased to 4 to 1 from the previous 2.5 to 1.

                          I wasn't aware basic accounts got stp? Nice that they do.

                            I agree (again) with Old Veteran. I might pay 20 bucks for 1k rps. Maybe. Once in a great while. I will never in life pay $25 for 50 story points, unless they start sending call-girls around with the purchase.

                              if it was 1000 rps for $20,

                              I would spend about $200 a year on 10,000 rp packages. Minimum. Pretty much every year until I got bored.

                                Yea if it was $20-25 for 50 stp that converted into 1k rps I would participate. This is ridiculous at it's current price.

                                But maybe Skotos will get what they need. Maybe the 5% of the playerbase that purchases Stp at this rate is exactly what Skotos needed to get back in the black.
